Hello! I am from Vancouver and have been tasked with organizing a dinner in Toronto. Yikes and help! I don't know the food sources at all. A group of 12 highschool classmates will be flying in from various parts of Canada to celebrate their respective 60th birthdays in cottage country on the May long weekend. I am looking to source two things:
- a butcher from whom I could preorder .... and who would prepare and cryovac a large porchetta that I could then transport up to a cottage and roast on a rotisserie.
- a source for charcuterie / cheese for appetizers
We will be staying at Yonge/Bloor. We will have a car and I am happy to drive a reasonable distance to source the right products.
I am starting my research and thought I would also reach out here. So far, Grace Meats, Maselli's and Cumbrae's were butchers I was thinking of contacting. Hogtown Charcuterie also looks interesting. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much in advance!!
